, with some of the emotion as both candidates were wrapping up those speeches last night. michelle obama, i thought, as well, was, was emotional, more emotional certainly than i've heard her before, when she was talking to the crowd. let's play a little bit of that. >>> the auto industry was in crisis. this economy was losing 800,000 jobs a month. and a lot of folks were wondering whether we were headed for another great depression. do you hear me? that's what people were worrying about. and that is what barack faced on day one as president of the united states. >> how emotional has this last tour for the president and michelle obama been? >> it's been very emotional. and last night, when i watched some of that i found myself walking away from the television, i know michelle obama's family very well. her family roots, on her father's side, or right here in south carolina and georgetown county, which was a part of my congressional district, so i understand that emotion ap. so those emotions, you get wrapped up here and then you lay your heart out, and you know that you were not dealt a hand

[ voice of dennis ] allstate. with accident forgiveness, they guarantee your rates won't go up just because of an accident. smart kid. [ voice of dennis ] indeed. are you in good hands? >>> so when digging through our final nbc/"wall street journal" poll before the election, our first read team noticed some familiar numbers. for one, the president is exactly where george w. bush was at this point in the national race. both incumbents at 48% and the challengers at 47%. bush was at 49% at the time in 2008. obviously, all good news for president obama. wrong year. let's go to mark murray to discuss trends. we have to talk about the breaking news. governor romney going to cleveland, ohio, pittsbur
is the charm, right? the dress michelle obama wore on election night, maybe you recognized it. it's one she's worn twice in the past at a military event in 2010 and first to a holiday party in '09. a source told "people" magazine she was so busy with the campaign, she had no time to think about an outfit for that evening. she reportedly decided to pick that at the last minute. it was a fifth place finish for roseanne barr. no joke here, the comedienne finished fifth in the presidential election, getting 49,000 votes. >>> on the funny side of things, nbc news anchor brian williams sat down with funny man david letterman to talk about the election in a serious way. >> this was a campaign targeting really specifically targeting reading the census, going after a demographic, the engine room in chicago with all these mass whizes deciding how do we win this thing? they went after specific groups, counties, neighborhoods, precinct captains. this was math. it was ground game. >> last night, though, south park had a different explanation for how the president won the election. voter fraud. and eric
, it's gametime. we don't get another chance tomorrow. >> and michelle obama's name -- make sure you vote. get people out to the polls. this is literally going down to the wire. >> further complicating things. in new jersey, they extended the voting deadline and you can vote online because of the storm damage. , wet of the votes ,w won't know when they are tallied. new jersey is not competitive. if it is close -- there may be a recount or legal challenges. i worry about a 50-50 country. people are really empassioned about the election. they may not see specificity in the next four years but i wonder, if it is close, people will get fired up. >> one side or the other will argue about legitimacy. it.oth sides -- you've seen and for seaside viewers -- there is the debate about if all the public polls are wrong, the think obama will win, the polls look better for him than mitt romney. a lot of conservatives say the polls are manipulated. i tried to find where the preponderance of the polls were wrong. this is not mean that you cannot have this unexplained and undetectable surge among the
the democratic national convention in charlotte, but michelle obama spent time there. this race is pretty interesting. when you look at some of the exit polling you're seeing the president do very well among women. i think it was 52% we had in the smaller samples of the state, exit polls there. and we're looking at church attendance, where mitt romney is doing a little better than the president. >> brown: but this was the question, stu, for the president, to hold this coalition, the expanding the vote he was able to do in 2008 nay place like north carolina. and as we were hearing from mark and david earlier, in virginia and other places. >> right. in north carolina, with 60%, he has a fighting chance. i think most of us thought he would be a slight underdog, winning by opinion 3% when he was the insurgent candidate, change candidate, it looked more difficult. but north carolina is really interesting. the president won it it last time. it's a close race now. yet, today, the-- voters in north carolina have elected a republican as governor, pat mccrorp. and two years ago, republicans sweeppe
after michelle obama spoke. he looked sad at that point. i can understand why. he had adoring crowds four years ago. he has a tough time now scaring up a decent-sized crowd. i think a lot of democrats are not in to him or his solutions or a faith that he needs to get done for america. they are not crazy presidental tern tiff for voting for romney but they are not into obama at this time. >> leslie they talk about how obama's pollster told him early on that hope and change could not be recycled in a country the way so many americans are, the unemployment rate and so on and they decided to go negative, they decided they had to quote, kill mitt romney. the theory of th is that president obama didn't really love doing that. he loved the hope and change but he knew he had to do what he had to do to get reelected. he's trying to change the message in the last few days to get more positive but a number of americans are wondering what happened. >> thank you dr. larson. when you have over 10,000 people at a rally in ohio i wouldn't say they were begging people to come. i wish i could get ten
-elected. >> reporter: he and first lady michelle obama rejoiced with the vice president and his wife and other friends and family. the president, giving a special thank you to the first lady. >> and i wouldn't be the man i am today without the woman who agreed to marry me 20 years ago. [ cheers and applause ] let me say this publicly. michelle, i have never loved you more. i have never been prouder to watch the rest of america fall in love with you, too, as our nation's first lady. >> reporter: the president tweeted to his supporters, we're all in this together. that's how we campaigned. and that's who we are. crowds rejoiced in times square. outside the white house. in chicago. but not so much at the headquarters for mitt romney in boston, where bystanders said, you could hear a pin drop, as the networks called the election for president obama. reports last night that governor romney was so confident in his victory, he had only written one speech beforehand, a victory speech. >> like so many of you, paul and i have left everything on the field. we have given our all to this campaign. [ cheers and app
and we were poor, let me tell you about our beginning and michelle obama saying we couldn't afford anything, ann romney saying i remember the first business. we didn't know that it would even succeed. and then they did all the television shows and there were certain shows, for example, like "the view" in which mitt romney did not want to appear because he said that he thought the participants were sharp-tongued. i don't know where he got that impression but mrs. romney did come on and both of them have been to the battleground states many times since the convention campaign. mrs. obama going 21 times, mrs. romney, 27 times they went to nevada, colorado, iowa, wisconsin, ohio, virginia and new hampshire and these are the ones who have been the surrogates with mrs. obama, no, my husband is not a cold fish. we have dinner every night with the kids. you should know him. you should see that smile. i love him. you should love him. mrs. romney who is very close to her husband in the strategy, she plays a bigger role than just being the wife of, she is the one who said, he is not a stiff m
michelle obama and other surrogates have been there, but it is quite remarkable it would be this close, unless there had been a lot going on under the surface and in mobilizing the obama voters that maybe we haven't been able to see. >> and by all other reports, gwen, it was a big republican year. the republicans returned the governorship. the democratic governor did not seek reelection. the republicans won the governorship. i think the republicans expected to pick up a couple of house see the, and yet this presidential race-- >> there had been a possibility and again we don't know who the win the election, there had been the thought that president obama would win the electoral and not the popular but with the closeness in state like north carolina, that seems less likely. >> woodruff: i'd like to see the colorado numbers if we can get those up in a few minute. we haven't seen where things stand right now. ray suarez in chicago with the obama campaign. ray displai you know, gwen, people have been filing in here all night and starting to pay very close attention to the returns coming in
, michelle obama would be 5. if you lay these over in ohio, what the republicans believe the obama campaign has done is banked a lot of their high propensity vote who were going to show up anyway. what they're trying to do is call the low propensity voters in ohio and turn out a hire percentage of their high propensity voters on election day. the obama campaign acknowledges some of the folks banking now are probably closer to the high propensity scale. they do believe there'll be enough of a firewall particularly in northern ohio to get that state across the finish line. >> shira, there's a new tampa bay times, bay news, "miami herald" poll mitt romney leading by 6 points. however our poll, the nbc marist poll shows the president leading by two. we're all scratching our heads here. what do you make of these polls and the difference between them? >> well, it's obvious that both campaigns still view it as a battle ground. we can see that by where they put their money. the obama campaign made a renewed effort, i guess you could call it a final push in florida by buying up more ad time there. i

yesterday by first lady, michelle obama. thought i was looking in your living room, now, rob. >> does that look like a plastic tree? the centerpiece of the decorations is outsized 300-pound gingerbread model of the white house that sits in the state dining room. after the big unveiling, mrs. obama helped the children of military families make holiday decorations and bo, the for the portuguese water dog got in on the act wearing a special jingle bell collar. >>> and they threw the switch last night here in new york, lighting the big old christmas tree in rockefeller center. the 84-foot norway spruce is decked out in more than 30,000 beautiful lights. >> after it was found, workers, braced the tree with cables when superstorm blew through. lost power. and this one as you can clearly see turned out great, all ten tons, 20,000 pounds of it. actually the 80th annual lighting of the tree. only a few blocks from here. this is your first christmas in new york. >> yeah, going ice skating. a little loop. a little triple salchow. not really. i don't know if those are legitimate terms. >> you roc
't use the president there but they sent michelle obama there a lot, she was just there on monday and bill clinton was in north carolina as well. >> we must stress it's early in the evening and we're operating on early figures. but this could be the first real surprise of the evening, if the trend continues down there. >> pelley: the strength of the president in north carolina. >> yes. >> pelley: thank you, bob. let's have a quick look at the presidential race map as it stands just now. the red states we are projecting for mitt romney, the blue states for president obama. but as bob just said, it is early yet. cbs news coverage of election night, 2012, will continue? just a moment. >> pelley: breaking news, cbs news projects that president obama will carry the state of new jersey. and its 14 electoral votes. with that let's have a look at the presidential race map. mr. obama has 78 electoral votes, mitt romney 82 electoral votes at this early stage on the way to 270 needed to win. anthony mason has been looking at some of the swing states where we don't have enough information
speaker out there on the campaign trail. >> she is and what strikes me about michelle obama and ann romney is not doing feel-good speeches. they're talking about policy and, you know, they carry a dagger as i like to say, wrapped in velvet which is what she was doing talking about the auto bailout and mitt romney. so, very political speech. >> very passionate. >> passionate speech. she's become an enormous asset for this president. not only for him personally but her stature has grown over time. i think it grew in part because she warmed up and she also had a softer side. more feminine side. i was a little surprised by the tone of the speech but listen. >> tough. >> it's a last 24 hours. a lot of passions. they're tired. i think all is forgiven. >> gloria, romney making a surprise trip tomorrow to pennsylvania, another one to ohio. do you think it makes a difference? >> well, in talking to people on his staff, they say it will. first of all, no early voting in pennsylvania. so they're not up against the machine there. secondly, i was talking to someone on his staff saying to me today that
president's play a very important role in advising them. nancy reagan was very influential, michelle obama. but that influence is not across the board. it is not systematic. if they see a particular person or they say this person is really on your side or don't trust this person, selectively, they have a lot of clout. i think it is used very selectively because they are not interested across the board, they are interested in specific people. in limited areas, like any trusted adviser of the president would have. >> part of the assumption is that every time there is a change in administration, there is new personnel. most of these democratic and republican administration have government in waiting and they are a retread from one job to another, and should that shorten the process? >> they do have to go through the whole of fbi investigation for every appointment which just doesn't make sense. but your broader point that there are farm teams out there, think tanks, universities, businesses, that is true. if you start at one level, get some experience, maybe you're qualified for a higher leve
questions about whether the administration purposely held it until after the election? michelle mal pin saws it's another example of lack of transparency for the obama team. >> par for the course for the most transparent ever.n the morr drone was fired at by these two iranian jets and it doesn't come out until after the election 6789 yes it stinks in here. but that has been the obama way. they accused the republicans incessantly of voter suppression but these people have been responsible for massive collective systemic truth suppression. it is not just the white house that has to answer for this but the lap dogs in the media, i would like to know were there any outlets informed of this and co told to keep it quiet, the same way we know many journalists were apprised of benghazi and kept quiet about it to serve this campaign's needs before the election? again, people's blood should be boiling. >> asked whether the incident was an act of war the pentagon spokesman said he would not legally label it. >>> before you leave the house this morning let's get the first degree weather update for janic
